Abstract

Th e 74th AMS Annual Meeting was held 23-2 5 January 1994 at the Oprylan d Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. A special symposium, the Sympo- sium on the Atmospheric Sciences, the Public and Public Service headed the event by affirming that the atmospheric sciences may be, indeed, the most public of all sciences. The public experiences the atmosphere each day and over the last decade has learned of critical atmospheric and environmental issues such as climate change, ozone depletion, environmental pollution, and the uses of water resources. Additionally, the modernization of the National Weather Servic e will dramatically affect how meteorological informa- tion is communicated to the public. To better serve the public, the meteorological community needs to be more aware of what critical information the public needs, how best to communicate that informa- tion, and how to work with the media, which serves as an information conduit. Effective information exchange was the key goal of the meeting, which featured the Tent h International Confer- ence AMS on Inter- active Informa- tion and Processing System s for Meteorology, Ocean- ography, and Hydrology; the Eighth Conference on Atmospheric Radiation; the Eighth Joint Conference on the Applications of Air Pollution Meteorology
